Watching herons and egret fish can be most entertaining. And none is more active when it comes to stalking prey in the shallows than the reddish egret, distinguishable by the rusty colored plumes along the head and neck.

When hunting fish and crustaceans, the reddish egret uses its wings to create shade in order to reduce the sun's glare on the water surface.
